Had a long weekend at Rivendell with my hubby. Angela & Barrie are a very friendly welcoming couple. Nothing is too much trouble for them, the Guest House is superbly decorated and exceptionally clean. The breakfast was second to none. Excellent all round. well recommended and would defiantly stay there again.

The parking spaces were full but one was being used by the owners daughter who moved her car straight away. We didn't even need to ask about parking. Barrie was lovely and showed us to our room - which... More

The hill is very steep and not suitable for those with mobilityproblems. there is a shuttle bus service but it stops at 7pm. We booked room 7 because it boasted a "sea view". However this room is built into the attic and has... More

Rivendell Guest House is a lovely place just a short walk from plenty of beaches, restaurants and other attractions that St Ives has to offer, very clean and tidy, brilliant breakfast and on site parking which is very handy and worth a lot when staying in St Ives, we will hopefully be visiting again soon

Great visit in ST:Ives and at Rivendells B&B. The room, the breakfast and the service was fantastic. Perfect located, only a short walk from the city center. Don't miss to visit Land's End nearby. A magic view. / Frida and Jonas B from Sweden.

Angela and Barrie run a little gem of a place here! The rooms are well appointed, and spotlessly clean. Great brekkie in the morning and onsite parking, in a perfect location. Can't wait to return!! The pic is the view from room 6.
